Why did I write this Crime Novel?
I've always been a crime fiction and suspense thriller addict. When I was young my parents took me to see Ian Fleming’s Goldfinger and I was hooked. In the 70s movies like: The Getaway, The Seven-Ups and The Godfather were a driving force in my entertainment choices.Over the last ten years I've become a noir mystery and crime fiction vortex, consuming everything I could read, watch and play. It's inspired me to create my own Crime Fiction series. My first novel 'Bourbon & Blood' is the beginning of a series of fast-paced action adventure novels with a touch of romance.I have a strong social media platform and successful book review blog, where I introduce readers to the best authors in mystery, suspense and thriller categories.
Give ‘Bourbon & Blood’ a try and get a page-turning real taste of New York City’s crime underworld with Bill and Dana. I can only hope that you enjoy reading ‘Bourbon & Blood’ as much as I did writing it.
Best regards, Garrard Hayes
Why Read Bourbon & Blood?
Kindle readers who have enjoyed bestselling authors; Lee Childs, Dennis Lehane, Adrian Mckinty and James Lee Burke will love the gritty fast reading style of 'Bourbon & Blood'. In the tradition of action-packed noir thrillers, comes a crime fiction story about an otherwise good guy "bent" bad when he's pulled into the underbelly of the New York City crime scene.
Drugs, sex trafficking and murder... Former soldier and decorated war hero Bill Conlin finds himself immersed in it all when he can't find "respectable" work after his tour in Afghanistan. When his cousin, Jimmy, first tries to talk him into joining Irish mafia boss Frank Sullivan's gang, Bill brushes him off. When he is forced into an interview there's no escape. See what happens next.
All Bill really wants is a normal life with a nice girl, and he's pretty sure the waitress he just met, Dana, is the one. But with his savings running low, and desperate to get out of his Hell's Kitchen near-tenement apartment building, Bill, against his better judgment, agrees to a meeting with Mr. Sullivan--and immediately hits the point of no return... Now with a brand new Lincoln and fancy new uptown digs (complete with a live-in girl whose only purpose is to serve him, and a wardrobe packed with weapons), Bill's tasked to take down a Harlem-based Mexican prostitution ring.
One thing leads to another, however, and the deeper he gets, the more he learns, and the more tangled up he becomes in a lifestyle he never wanted. But how long until he takes matters into his own hands.
